Your city has experienced a high degree of turnover in department heads. As a result, a number of new individuals have been hired, bringing together varying levels of experience. With the new fiscal year fast approaching, there are several pressing issues that must be addressed, such as budgets, crime, and other critical issues facing the city. The mayor wants to hold a workshop with all department heads to address these issues, as well as help develop long-range plans for the city council members to review and approve. As the chief, you must attend and represent your department. How will you persuade the mayor to continue increasing your fiscal budget and show your successes so far to back up these requests?
